It's my first year. My goal was the salsa. The tomatoes are a bonus! I was hoping to do salsa because I have 3-4 recipes that I make regularly where one of the main ingredients is a jar of salsa. I have been trying to do as much organic as possible, and the brand I have been buying is about $4 when not on sale.

Maybe I will do more next year. :)

How cool that you make your own salsa. My mom used to can tomatoes. I used to help. Still remember the peeling and peeling and peeling......It's great that you can do that. Do you can anything else?

COURT - lol you are so thoughtful! Sorry I had to leave so quickly. Those lil emoticon we're calling for me. ;)

This is my first year with a garden like this. My first ever canning stuff. I am loving it! I have about 27 jars of salsa and about 16 quarts of tomatoes. I am really excited...nervous too... Hoping I don't make us sick because I didn't do something right.

Thanks, usually Saturdays are free, my SIL comes over to play cards with my DH, but today we had to take her shopping first. I've been on other teams who have had parties, fun, food and music and talk. I can dance or read the post with the music in the background. haha

Court, what a sweet heart you are!!!, sorry everyone left, but I'm hoping to make this a weekly thing and to bring more and more people into our chats, I don't know if you read the message posts but it was really good to be able talk about normal stuff for a change and not what motivates us or keeps us determined. I found myself laughing right out loud at the thought of Joette with a rifle in her hands, gotta watch them little ones, and Tara with three names, who'd thunk it??? So if you can make it next Saturday at 1:00 PM EST, 12:00 PM CT, 11:00 AM MT, or 10:00 AM PST I would really love to have you join us and this time I will bring the goodies!!!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I have faith in my ability to succeed!

Joette, I use to have 3 dogs when I had my own home, but one by one they got older and passed, miss them, such wonderful animals. I now have 2 cats, one is a little nasty not people friendly and he needs to be on Spark, the other is a real sweetie follows me room to room always has to be by my side, I think he thinks he is a dog since he was raised with one for a short period of time in his life!

Well ladies, thanks for spending this time with me, glad we got to know each other a little better, I think I'll let the thread keep running to see if anyone else wants to join in. I have to go and throw in another load of laundry in, but thanks for helping me out, I really appreciated it, you guys are the best!!!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

Well ladies, this has been so much fun. I love just chatting and getting to know each other. I hope we will do this again. Hopefully more people will see how great this is and join us. But I need to go fix lunch for dad and myself, Jonathan is out until later this afternoon. Then I have to give dad his massage before I head over to my brother's.

Love you guys!

Awww, thanks Angie. Funny you mention my hair. I've decided my reward for the 30 pound mark is going to be a hair cut...going to go short, kind of like your style actually.

Well truth is I've had a legal change of name twice. My family is a little out there and when I was 10 my parents were into numerology and changed all our names. I was born Cynthia Leigh Hodge and that changed to Hilarey Greene and then I changed Hilarey to Tara-Lee

Joette and Tara and Bonnie you guys are all still babies just celebrated my 60th birthday last Saturday, with my family, grandkids, niece's and nephews down the shore and we all had the time of our lives. My son has a camper that sleeps 8 comfortably, well we managed to squeeze in 15 comfortably and when you woke up in the morning and came outside it looked like a clown car at a circus where the door opens up and people just keep on coming out one right after the other. I think I laughed from the time I got up in the morning till the time I went to sleep at night, it was such a great time.

As for what I'm doing this Saturday, the usual laundry and cleaning, but later I will head on over to my son's to give him his birthday present, and see the kids!!

I also have two cats. Spec is a calico that is mostly white. She has a few huge 'spots' of each calico color on her back and part of her face is colored. Rose is a huge fat cat. she weighs about 17-18 lbs... down from 20! I dont remember what type she is. She is grey and black striped. Is that a tabby?

Hehe, it is kind of funny to picture Joette holding a big gun! Joette, it is amazing how fast a closet can get out of control. A visit with a friend sounds much more fun lol

Canada is beautiful, but I've visited a bit of the states and it was gorgeous. I love Spokane.
Today, is grocery shopping day, but I think I'll put that off till tomorrow. I'm babysitting my niece tonight, so I'll head over there around 4:30. I'm really looking forward to that.

The gun is a challenge. Before I had to deal with the Breast cancer, I had a frozen shoulder that took about 2 years to get better (still was dealing with it during the radiation). It still isn't 100% but it doesn't slow me down anymore... Now I need to build up the muscle again. The shoulder has gotten more back to normal just in the past couple months.

How are you guys going to spend the rest of your saturday?

I am going to work on canning some more tomatoes from my garden. :D
I am also hoping to clean my closet of all the clothes that no longer fit. I have a major project with my closet. :D I have been decluttering my bedroom for a month or so, and the closet is the last frontier!
I also have a friend that may come to visit... If she does, that closet will still be waiting for another day. lol

Sort of, you can play it online with and against other people. But it's not a traditional mmo. Think of a walking into a fantasy world where hundreds, even thousands of people have also come to and you spend time together exploring, fighting bad guys and saving good guys.

I have to agree with Angie, you don't look old enough to have a 27 yr. old!

Angie, I think doing that civil rights bus trip would be an amazing thing. I'd love to do something like that.

Angie, I am 48. :D All my life I have heard that..."you aren't old enough??!!" :D I keep telling people I hope I am still hearing it when I am 90.

MMO is massively multi-player online. There games like WoW, Guild Wars etc. It's a video game where you play with other people from all over the world.

Joette, you don't look old enough to have a son 27!!..I figured you to be in your late 30's, you must be like that picture of Dorian Grey, the one where as long as he keeps the painting he never ages, LOL!!! I was only married once, and that lasted 11 years, but if I was ever to meet someone again and started to travel, I would not travel all over Europe first. I would love to travel the different states we have here in our own country!! I've been fortunate enough to travel through the south, chaperoning a group of kids, we re-enacted the Civil Rights Bus Trip and I had the time of my life, at first the kids did not want me on the trip, as I was the only white person, but after about 3 days they trusted me and I had such a good time with them and I learned so much. My favorite states would have to be Tennessee and Georgia, they are so beautiful, hot!!!, but beautiful and the food was delicious!!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I have faith in my ability to succeed!

Good to hear, Bonnie. You must have picked up a bug, there are lots floating around right now.

Where did our Angie run off to?

My hobbies vary, I'm a bit of a gamer and love MMO's. I got into that because it allowed me to something social while being home to care for, first my mom and now dad.

I love the theatre, dreamed of being an actress when I was younger and was very involved in theatre here until I had my son, then parenting had to become number 1 priority.

Now that I ate something or rather drank a smoothie I am feeling better. I forgot about this until I was going through my emails and saw a new thread started by you about Friday dreams

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

my husband wants a motorhome and to travel like that when we retire. I am not so sure I will like it. I like going on vacation and being gone a week or two.... but after that I want to be home! :D Besides that, we don't ever see us without a dog or two and traveling with them may be difficult too.

What kind of hobbies do you have?

I like to read, be active (outside as much as possible).

My whole family likes to hunt. Of all of us, I am the one that doesn't get out there with a huge passion. I like to go, but I really like staying home too. I didn't hunt last year because of being sick. this year, I just don't feel like going. My stepdaughter has Buck Fever real bad this year. :D

Last year was the first time for deer hunting. We have always done waterfowl (duck, geese, pheasant)

I'm like you, I'd love to travel Canada and that is a goal of mine when I retire. Buy a motorhome or rent one and spend a year or more exploring all of Canada.

Sounds like you have an amazing marriage. I've never been married, but many people I know that are in their second marriage say they learned so much from the first and that's why the second is so much better.

My husband LOVES to travel. I was lobbying real hard for a trip to Alaska. But he got really excited when we started seeing stuff for Colorado. Since he is the travel nut, and I am extremely happy to be anywhere he is... I let him make the decision. :D

Its amazing how much different the relationship is from my first marriage. I was married 17 years the first time around.

That is a great anniversary present for you guys, a getaway for just the two of you. Couples often don't take time to spend together. My brother and sil have a date night every 2 weeks and I get to babysit my niece, it's great for them to have that time.

YAY!

I am in Michigan. I have 3 kids. My son is 27 and my step children are 16 and 14. I am looking forward to celebrating my 10th anniversary next March. :D We have been planning a trip for just the two of us. I think we have settled on Colorado. There is so much in our country that we want to see, it was hard to choose.

I am anxious to have grandchildren, but Jonathan is extremely shy and not very good at meeting girls; so I have to be patient lol. Having my niece helps a lot, I love spending time with her.

Hi Everyone! I'm really excited to meet my neighbors and great friends in Spark World!! All of you know me by irishangie1, my name is Angie O'Mara, and I live in Philadelphia, PA. I have 3 grown children, 2 sons who are married and 1 beautiful daughter who is finishing up her last year of Graduate School at Penn State. I am a proud grand mother of 8 beautiful grandchildren ranging in age from 18 to 6 months and they are all the apples of my eyes!! It's funny but each grandchild and I have our own unique and special bond and I love it, and even the teenagers will call me and ask if they can stay over or do I want to hang out, LOL, have to laugh at them sometimes they treat me like one of the crowd, and I think this is a good thing....because they are so open and honest with me on every subject, and I mean every subject, sometimes I would rather not know, but I appreciate the fact they feel comfortable with me and seek my advice.

So enough about me and my family, let's meet some of our other neighbors!

Joy overflows in my life!

I have inner peace!!

I have the power to change myself!

I have faith in my ability to succeed!
